Looking back at original floor plans and layouts of our clients’ homes often makes us scratch our heads and think, “why would anyone design it that way in the first place?” Unfortunately, “cookie cutter” homes are not always designed in a way that optimizes usable space. Kitchens, in particular, are typically set up in a way that creates unwanted traffic and congestion in the work areas, isolates the cook from the neighboring rooms, and lacks the necessary features for optimal organization and efficiency. These are the most common complaints we get from our clients looking to renovate, and were definitely the case with our most recent kitchen remodel!
Check out this beautiful new kitchen we just installed! This home had been in our client’s family for years; they had no intention of ever moving, but realized it was time for some updating.
The original kitchen had a great footprint, so we didn’t have to relocate any of the appliances – the sink, stove and fridge all remained in the same place. This made it easier for our clients to focus on what would really make a big difference in their kitchen: modifying the cabinets for more functional and convenient storage!
